TORONTO Feb 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Monday as weak data from China and a drop in crude oil prices weighed on the resource-linked market.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 162.84 points, or 1.27 percent, at 12,659.29 shortly after the open. It included a 2.9 percent drop for energy stocks. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
